SteelSeries 7G keyboard for pro gamers

Hard wearing keyboard for pros

| Peripherals News | Posted: Nov 14, 2007 7:58 am

Danish specialist gaming accessory maker SteelSeries has launched it long awaited 7G series keyboard and it had been designed specifically for professional and competitive gamers. SteelSeries claims that it has the most powerful PS/2 buffer system ever created and it allows you to press every single key on the keyboard simultaneously. It's meant to reduce any ghosting effects that you can get with regular keyboards which tend to result in a kind of lag.

 

Each of the keys features a gold plated mechanical switch and a 50 million operation life time. SteelSeries claims that this gives the 7G an edge for gamers as it offers more actions per minute than any other keyboard in the world. Any takers? All keys also operated at 60g with a travel time which is meant to be about 50 percent faster than other competing products.

 

 

The keyboard features both USB and PS/2 connectivity as well as a pair of 3.5mm jacks for headphone and mic connectivity. At the back of the keyboard are two USB ports, but there's no mention if these are USB 2.0 compatible or not, and a pair of 3.5mm sockets into which a headset can be connected.

 

There's also a removable wrist rest supplied with the 7G as you can see from the picture above, but it doesn't look very comfortable or ergonomic. The 7G has a MSRP of US$149.99 and is currently available for pre-order. It's available in US, Danish, German and French layout.
